Is Bollywood is slowly embracing the Indian National Congress. After Kartik Aaryan is now Shraddha Kapoor extending her support to the Congress party for the Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh elections. Vote in favour of the Congress
As the assembly elections are currently underway in five states, certain Congress supporters have been circulating the video above, asserting that Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor is endorsing the Congress party. This claim started just ahead of the Madhya Pradesh polls and the second phase of the Chhattisgarh polls.
In the video, a sticker with the words “Andheri to Chanderi” is visible as Shraddha Kapoor sits in a moving car. Suddenly, the video rewinds to reveal a wall painting expressing support for Congress. Utilizing this footage, some have claimed that the actor has shown support for Congress, as seen here and here.

There are no credible news reports that had reported on the actress’ support for Congress. A small wall painting in the actress’ video is taken out of proportion to make false claims of her support to the party. Earlier, a video of actor Kartik Aaryan was used for a similar misinformation.
Shraddha Kapoor has not endorsed, supported or joined the Congress party. These claims are false.
